Future of Nuclear 2013 Agenda

The Future of Nuclear Energy

Many jurisdictions are facing challenging decisions regarding the future of nuclear. Nuclear reactors produce some of the world’s cleanest energy with respect to GHG and are a reliable source for base load power.  However, nuclear reactor projects require large capitalization, have a history of going over budget, and produce irradiated waste and byproducts that can be used for military purposes.  In a post-Fukushima world, nations are deciding whether to refurbish or decommission existing reactors, look at building new reactors, or consider investing in an entirely new generation of nuclear reactors based on different technologies with operating characteristics very different from reactors we have known to date. The Future of Nuclear conference and site were created as an unbiased, objective platform to promote informed discussion and build awareness about nuclear energy and related topics.  On October 9, 2013, industry leaders will gather to discuss the most important issues surrounding nuclear energy in Canada and around the world.
